Getting the mail each afternoon doesn't always feel like Christmas:) It's so refreshing when something amazing and jaw-dropping pops up (other than a bill). And something did! These beautiful address labels just arrived. The big ones are for mailing packages like books and the smaller ones are for letters, etc. One of my dear readers on the east coast gifted me with these. Bless you! She was even savvy enough to contact my publisher for permission which they gladly granted. I don't expect gifts from readers so am always humbled and surprised when they come.
You all are gifting me all the time and probably never think anything of it. Every time you buy one of my books or blog about it or post a review or take time to read and comment here is HUGE. I've been on the other side when no one commented and I had no readers. I'll never forget those days. They were discouraging and made me wonder if coming out of my writing closet was worthwhile. Now it's a true wonder to get to know you personally. Bless you for that privilege. God is so good to have brought us together!
Meanwhile, summer is in full swing and there are so many good books releasing. I'm going to be doing a double book giveaway of two signed copies of Kaye Dacus's wonderful The Ransome Trilogy soon. If you haven't read Ransome's Honor or Ransome's Crossing, you really must. They're Regency romances that deal with a very handsome, oh so honorable Royal Navy captain and the lovely Julia Witherington and other intriguing, very memorable characters. You'll go on a high seas adventure without leaving the comfort of your chair:)
Without further ado...
